Just glanced over this thread and I'm wondering if I'm one of the only ones that only feed once a week or once a fortnight?

I've two yearlings and several hatchlings, ALL get fed at least once a fortnight, though usually every 8-10 days.

My two 1 year olds are both on hoppers/small mice, what ever you would like to call them. Creamsicle is a little under 3ft and my Common is a little OVER 3 and a half foot - that is even with a one food item feeding every 7-14 days.

You guys must have huge corns? That isn't a dig, I'm genuinely interested lol

Not sure to be honest mate i believe it came from an american website originally. All i know is that i did a quick copy and paste and saved it into a word document for future reference.

Glad some people found it of use. Might re-post it in the newbie section if people think it would be of use?

My late 07 is currently on 1 fuzzy a week. It can actualy get a rat pup down but it does sturggle so i'm going to stick with the fuzzies until it gets slightly bigger. When it was smaller i had it on 2 pinkies a week, but i very rarely give it more than one mouse per week currently.
